Included are practical experience for reactors, and equipment for size reduction and enlargement, mixing and blending, and physical separations - topics that are rarely given in other sourcebooks. This is not a listing of facts; rather it is a synthesis of data from the author's experience, colleagues in industry and hundreds of sources, expressed with consistent terminology and SI units to make use easy." "Extensive cross-referencing guides the engineer in locating equipment used for many different purposes. A detailed index quickly and reliably directs engineers in their everyday work at process plants: from keywords to solutions in a matter of minutes. Key dimensionless groups, handy conversion factors, and vapour pressure data are included." "Practical how-to tips are given for handling corrosion, controlling processes, design, process improvement, problem solving, goal setting, team work, performance reviews, listening, communication, leadership and much more."--Jacket."
